Stannah is an independent, British, family-owned engineering company celebrating its 150th anniversary.

Established in 1867 by Joseph Stannah, the company first made its name making hoists and cranes for the London dockyards. During WW2, the Stannah factory was destroyed and Leslie Stannah rebuilt the business from scratch. In the 1960s Brian and Alan Stannah grew the brand introducing passenger and service lifts and later the well-known stairlift.

Having weathered social change, multiple recessions and two world wars, Stannah’s ever-growing portfolio now includes stairlifts, homelifts, platform and passenger lifts, service and goods lifts, escalators, moving walkways, loading systems and maintenance for all lift products across all manufacturers.
